Founder Megan St. Lawrence attended her first yoga class with her mother and grandmother at age five and has been practicing ever since.
Her interest in the body mind connection, and eastern preventative medicine led her to a Bachelors of Arts degree in Psychology from The University of Tennessee, Knoxville. Here she started teaching Yoga, Pilates, Cycling, and Water Aerobics and Personal Training Sessions.
After graduation, she built close ties with the celebrated yoga studio Kali Yuga Yoga in East Nashville where she resided after teaching English as a second language in Barcelona, Spain. Megan studied for years with owner Leah Lillios King, and Liz Mead, and was deeply influenced by their Sivananda and Dharma Mittra yoga lineage.
Inspired and ready to deepen her practice and understanding, she travelled to Goa, India with Lara Baumann of Quantum Yoga to study and receive her 200+ hour Dynamic Vinyasa certification using Vinyasa, Ayurveda and Quantum Physics, the science of possibilities. It was in Goa where Meg fully immersed herself in the teachings of Ayurveda, its many cleansing therapies and spa like treatments, the yogi lifestyle, Indian cooking and how to use Indian herbs and food as medicine.
She then became a massage therapist after completing her 600 hour program at the Cortiva Institute, 60+ hours of Thai Yoga Massage courses, became a Reiki Practitioner, and Feng Shui Consultant. After putting what she had learned into practice and searching for more information about Meditation, Yoga Philosophy and Buddhism. Megan traveled to Sri Lanka, assisted and completed the 500 hour Quantum Yoga Teacher Training. After completing this intense course and thirsty for more knowledge, she traveled to the mountains of Sri Lanka and completed a 3 day silent meditation retreat at Nilambe Buddhist Meditation Centre.
